DCTC and DC_GUI


Hi. I found this Direct Connect client called DCTC and later I learned that it has a graphical frontend called DC_GUI (completely different from DCGUI-QT). I installed DCTC (Direct Connect Text Client) and then when I tried to install the GUI on top of it using the RPM it said that dctc was needed. It's there but the Software Installer can't seem to locate it. Now I'm trying to compile DC_GUI from the source and it seems to be stuck here:

[bob@localhost dc_gui2-0.76]$ make
make all-recursive
make[1]: Entering directory `/home/bob/dc_gui2-0.76'
Making all in src
make[2]: Entering directory `/home/bob/dc_gui2-0.76/src'

Should I wait it out? What should I do? I'd post this on the developer's board but there's hardly anyone there. All help is appreciated.

yes i have compiled dctc before and then compiled the gui afterwards and it really does take a long time..i think there is a file called main.c that takes a long time also...so yes let it sit there, go eat or watch tv, it will eventually compile....and its not unusual that it takes this long....so dont' worry about it, your not doing anything wrong

How long did it take total? do you remember? and how come when I tried to use the RPM for the GUI it said that it couldnt find DCTC? Do you still have it installed? Could you post some screenshots?

well i don't remember how long but it was a while...i don't use it anyways anymore, cause it was terrible, and you couldn't properly download amongst numerous other bugs....i use dcgui-qt now and it is superior to that and even far more superior to the windows version direct connect...so thats where i stand

I'm using DCGUI-QT as well but I wanna try out some other DC Clients.... I hear this DCGUI is cool. You don't have it installed anymore at all? I'd really like to see what it looks like.

all i can say and i know its a personal opinion, but dcgui-qt is going to be the best dc client you'll get...dctc is in very bad shape, especially if your connected behind a router or other...you have to set up all these options that most of the time dont' work so you don't get to download anything....its very buggy....it may have improved in the past 2-3 months but i won't go back after using dcgui-qt

Hi, someone could explain me how to launch DCTC and DC_GUI?
If I type "DCTC", it lists all the commands, if I launch DC_GUI obviously it doesn't works because it needs DCTC...
If someone could help me explaining in a very simple way I'll be very happy!
Thank you very much!

INSIDE!
